City housing Polička


Land size2890 m2
Built-up area850 m2

Detail of project

The competition design addressed new urban housing in Polička. The land in question was underused and the required conversion of the existing Youth Home into urban flats gave rise to the design of a new site. The proposal envisages the retention of the existing building and its conversion to its current form at the cost of a loft extension and redesign of the building. In addition to this, a further 2 blocks of flats are proposed on the site.

The architectural design of the buildings responds sensitively to the context of the surrounding development and seeks to create a unified design for all three buildings on the site. The material solution was chosen very sparingly, the light grey facade plaster is replaced by accents of wood cladding in the main entrance portal, the roof is sheet metal in dark grey (anthracite). The northern façade of the existing building is designed as a vegetated, i.e. vertical garden, offering a pleasant view to the occupants of the opposite, new northern building.

The principal limit of the competition was the amount of investment costs, which should not exceed CZK 60 million. For this reason, the buildings were designed as very austere, simple, functional units that should meet the criterion of the number of flats (22 units). However, we are convinced that the amount of the investment costs was chosen completely wrongly for such a specification and we would recommend the contracting authorities not to set price limits.

Build smartly

Love the Design&Build concept.

We are a team of experienced architects and building engineers who will create a project for your house and reliably implement its construction exactly according to your wishes – from the initial survey to the final move-in.


A view of the project from several perspectives.

We work as a team, and the advantage of teamwork is looking at the problem from different perspectives. We are able to explore multiple options, consider different project concepts and find the optimal solution.


Meeting investment costs and deadlines.

An essential aspect for successful implementation is the high quality of the final work, meeting the agreed deadline for implementation and, of course, meeting the investment costs.


Implementation under the supervision of architects.

In order to achieve a high quality building, you need a regular check directly from the father of the idea, i.e. the architect who conceived the architectural design of your project.


Seamless synergy between architects and builders.

Since our team of specialists includes both architects and builders who have been working together for a long time, we are able to ensure a smooth and seamless continuity of these different professions.
